are so heavily vested in government bonds. the report says japanese government bonds account for 24% of assets of banks in japan. the institutions could suffer heavy losses if bond prices plummet. banks around the world see japanese and u.s. government bonds as safer assets in the face of the prolonged credit crisis in europe. they snapped up japanese bonds, causing the yen to spike to record levels. imf economists note japan and the united states are facing huge deficits and the countries need to implement fiscal reforms to maintain investor confidence. it also acknowledges a decision by eurozone countries to launch a permanent fund designed to bail out struggling members. they say worries about the health of the region's financial system have increased since the spring with the need to use capital to help troubled banks in spain. >>> greece is one of the struggling eurozone members counting on bailout funds to keep it functioning. international lenders are demanding the country's politicians implement deep spending cuts in return for that aid. angela merkel traveled to athens to u
four working age people are jobless and they are growing satisfied with their government's plan to increase taxes and cut social spending. the jobless rate was 25.1% in july. that's up 0.3 percentage points from the previous months. people between the ages of 15 and 24 are facing the toughest situation. their unemployment rate hit 54.2%. that means one in two is out of work. government leaders are negotiating with the eu and other organizations so they can receive more bailout funds as soon as possible. >>> executives at a maj janese company appears to be dialing up a deal that will give them presence in the united states. softbank is considering acquiring sprint nextel. sprint nextel has more than 56 million subscribers. negotiations are to acquire more than two-thirds of the company's shares. it's expected to reach 2.8 billn. both firmsre providers for apple's iphone and they both use a high speed wireless communication protocol called long term evolution. the stronger yen is believed to be a factor in soft bank's decision in acquiring sprint nextel. they are hoping to vastly
the libyan government's response. it's a challenging environment in which to operate but i think we have done pretty well given the circumstances in which we find ourselves and we found ourselves able to move about and do the things that we have wanted to do because of the assistance we've gotten from the libyan government as well as from some of our other allies >> sreenivasan: a u.s. house committee holds a hearing tomorrow on the consulate attack. in pakistan, a taliban gunman shot and wounded a 14-year-old activist known for promoting girls' education. malala yousufzai was hit in the head and neck during the attack in the swat valley region. doctors said the wounds were not life-threatening. yousufzai spoke out on girls' education at a u.n. children's assembly last year. the taliban called her work "an obscenity" in a statement claiming responsibility for the attack. one out of every eight people on earth is going hungry, according to a u.n. report today. that comes to 870 million people, but it's far below the figure of one billion announced in 2009. the u.n. food and agriculture organiz
don't pay taxes and, in his words, are dependent on government, so he couldn't worry about them and their votes. >> in this case, i said something that's just completely wrong. and absoluly believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about the 100% and that has been demonstrated throughout my life. this whole campaign is about the 100%. when i become president, it'll be about helping the 100%. >> brown: still, president obama was having none of it. >> from the day we began this campaign, we've always said that real change takes time. it takes more than one year or one term, or even one president. it takes more than one party. it certainly can't happen if you're willing to write off half the nation before you even take office. >> brown: with the economy dominating the campaign, and with 12 million americans still unemployed, it was clear the punching and counter-punching over jobs will only grow more intense. and there's still one more monthly employment report coming-- on november 2, four days before election day. to help break down the jobs numbers, i am joined by neil
needed the u.s. government and we were in a position to tell the banks, let's go back to the social function, very important social functions. the banks have to provide in our society. and we lost that moment. >> rose: and the condition of the banks today is, of the big banks in wall street. >> well, to be frank, we really aren't sure because there's not the kind of transparency that we need. like one of my criticisms of dodd frank, we kept a lot of, for instance, these derif deriff-- derivative transparents. >> they made them a lit bit more. >> but as long as you have so much money at stake where you don't know what is at risk, you know, let me just give you one example. there are about 3 to 350 trillion dollars of derivatives that are based on libor. libor we now know is a-- number. >> explain what that is. >> the london interbank lending rate. so it's the rate, supposed to be an arm's length rate at which unone bank lends to each other. but the banks aren't lend fog each other s so what does it mean? it's a concept-- what rate do we think some other bank would lend to us. and we
protections that this federal government provides for them. >> but some employers are still taking advantage, and in the case of home health workers there are concerns about abuse continng a the baby boomer population ages. solis says the solution is education so people don't get stuck in dead end jobs. >> one of the things i know we're doing is looking at trying to provide a career path, so i know that there's a great interest to see that individuals in that industry are able to get certified so that they can meet certain qualifications and there's actually a career ladder for that, so we're very supportive of that. we've actually funded different grangrants that work with the industry as well as community-based groups and schools to try to that to maket we can get women, because it's predominantly women, to get to thaintothose careers so they caa certificate and they can go beyond and achieve a stepping stone so that they're not just stuck in a rut at a particular wage but they actually can look at increasing their wages and hopefully maybe even running their own particular business. >> j
nicolas sarkozy had the police presence in northern marseilles' reduced, the socialist government in paris wants to send more than 200 additional police to marseille. the left-wing mayor of the district says even that is not enough. she wants the army to patrol the district. >> i am only saying what the residents do not dare say out loud because they're afraid there will be repercussions. they are afraid their cars will be set on fire, they will be threatened, or their children a salted. >> those fears are justified. often police have to let dealers go shortly after they have arrested them, especially if they are minors. the police have the impression judges are undoing the work they have done. >> our courts should finally start imposing harsher penalties on drug consumers and dealers. >> the war against drug gangs is not even close to being one -- won. that harms marseille's prospects as a european capital of culture next year. the old port is being spruced up and a museum built, but not much is set to change in the city's in northern districts. >> when the soviet union fell apart, lithua
may heighten social discontent, as well as friction between the central and regional governments. the smp says prospects for the bonds were negative, suggesting further downgrades could follow. spanish leaders asked the eu in june for financial support to boost the capital of domestic commercial banks which are weighed down by bad loans. they may have to ask more bailout funds because the country's regions are asking the central government for financial assistance. >>> people around the world are feeling the effects of the global economic slow-down. but the poor and the young feel it more. ron madison spoke with the manager of the world bank to learn what can be done to lessen the burden millions share. >> reporter: some region developing the fastest are seeing some of the worst cases of poverty, significant portions of the populations living in poverty. that figure is expected to decline in 2013 from 2010. but still, fully 24.5% will be living on about $2 a day. what more now needs to be done to address poverty? >> i think in the next ten years they acquire a lot of risks. first
to continue to fund and support these governments. i think that's a very legitimate point. but on the one hand he says -- you know, he blames obama for whatever tension there is in the u.s./israel relationship today and i would argue there's very little tension in the state-to-state relationship but a lot of tension between the prime minister of israel and the president of the united states. but all of that is entirely obama's fault. anything that's wrong with the u.s./israel relationship is obama's fault. the fact that the prime minister of israel has continued with a settlement policy which is extremely controversial in israel somehow comes no where into the equation. so we're supposed to blieve on the one hand that america's supposed to lead the arab world from the front with one hand while adopting a policy toward israel that is more pro-israeli than anything any government in washington has articulated for a long time. how the two of them will go together i don't know. and for good measure, though-- and i think this is praiseworthy-- governor romney has called for a palestinian state and
represent a state government. how was the court in 2003 when affirmative action was upheld then, and now there's a possibility it won't be because of the terms of this particular case? what's different about the court? >> well, the composition of the court has changed. the grutter decision was 5-4 which chief justice ren quest was chief. it was a decision byjustice sandra y,o'connor, who was in the courtroom today of the guest seats of the justices. >> ifill: is that unusual? >> she has come occasion amy but i think she has a special interest in this case. you have new justices. you have four new justices on the court. but with the absence of justice kagan in this case, you're dealing with eight justices, the possibility of a 4-4 split. also, justice kennedy has always been the key vote in these race-based cases. he asked very few questions today, so hedidt really reveal-- >> ifill: you couldn't really read him. >> no, you couldn't. but i will say this about justice kennedy in these types of cases -- he has never found an affirmative action plan that he feels is constitutional. but he al
someone stand up for the policies they believe in, stand up for a role for government, call malarkey when it is. and i think you're going to see the democratic base of women far more energized. and you're going to see women then turn out in higher numbers which is very, very important to democric ictories. >> brown: kellyanne conway, let me come back to what you picked up. you could pick up on that but also what you said on how we approach these things. how we think about women's issues per sement because we keep hearing that the campaign could well hinge on women voters. do you think that is a wrong way of looking at it? >> it is absolutely correct that the next president and vice president will be decided ultimately by women. but it's absolutely a false premise to believe that there are quote women's issues. and that they all have to do with, you know, waste down. what abt waste up, where our brains and hearts and eyes and ears are. and i think 2010 really proved it. that's where two short years after 56% of women gave a strat spheric barack obama 56% of the vote, was unheard of for a n
is free for people in the neighborhood. through a combination of government and private funds, young people are paid to work in the gardens and also learn to cook the food they grow. >> the other challenge is people don't really know what to do with food. you know, they're not sure how to cook fresh vegetables. so it's easier to buy meat and make french fries, right? and so what you end up with is kids who have full bellies, but they're starved. >> reporter: food deserts contribute to high rates of diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. the problem is particularly acute in areas where the only option for food shopping is a small neighborhood convenience store. >> we really need to care about the entire person, holistically. if we're just caring about a person's soul, their spiritual part, then we're not really caring about people. >> reporter: kevin brown grew up in holly grove, another neighborhood devastated by hurricane katrina. his father was the pastor of a church in the neighborhood. >> in our community, there was a high incidence of heart disease, diabetes and food-rel
with it. the voucher program would cause people to take a chunk of money from the government and go out and buy their own insurance. only a limited amount of money would be available. then the costs go up, the senior citizens, who get that, have to pay the differee. the guarantee would be gone. that is the substance of how they would deal with medicare and that is the way it would be. the president did not make the case as effectively as he should of on that. >> that is factually wrong. let me just say, that is factually wrong. under the romney plan, the amount of money the government will give you is equal to the amount of the second lowest bid, meaning that you can get that plan for nothing, or the cheaper plan, there will be one cheaper, and then you can keep the extra money in your pocket. you have a choice, with no expenditure on your part of at least two plans, and you also have a plan for traditional medicare. >> allow me to add a factor here. under this precept, what i support is no change for current retirees and their retirees for medicare peer that is what mitt romney says. h
've got to tell their government to stop cyber attacking the united states. >> reporter: huawei aggressively pushed back. the company says the intelligence committee provided no clear evidence of wrong doing and it dismissed the report as politically motivated. a spokesman for huawei says the company is owned by its employees and its work around the world is trusted and proven. >> our procurements from us companies totaled $6.6 billion. that's tens of thousands of jobs. these recommendations put at risk american jobs. >> reporter: huawei appears to operate as a purely commercial enterprise, but it is hard to sort out who owns the company and how much of it. the intelligence committee report concludes some chinese telecomm equipment secretly transmitted information back to china. that's what concerns u.s. cyber- security experts. they fear the chinese government could use huawei's technology to access sensitive information. >> i think it is a legitimate concern. now the question is how much that concern is being used in the u.s. to block a much larger range of investments, becaus
is tightening up, which means anybody who is elected is likely to govern from the center, and attack the fiscal cliff. and so you have to say in a low return environment, shares of multinational companies with growing earnings and dividends are probably not a bad place to be. but you want to buy when the markets are down, not when they're up, and you want to sell low quality, buy high quality, and buy them on corrections, not after big moves. i would not be surprised if you have a little bit more of a correction right here. >> susie: so let's talk a little more about this correction. it feels like a correction. between what's going on with oil prices going lower, some of these earnings reports that we've been getting. so what are the risks ahead, and is this a buying opportunity? one strategist saying today that he's pretty upbeat because with central banks around the world pouring money into the financial system, it's kind of hard to see that the global economy will freeze up. so what's your take on this? risky period or a buying opportunity? >> well, look, it remains risky because with all of
gains in the session after a government report showed a slightly higher than expected increase in u.s. supplies last week. it ended back above $92 a barrel. heating oil and natural gas futures rallied. the same government report also forecast a rise in spending for winter heating fuels. heating oil is at a six-month high, and natural gas prices are at new highs for the year. those rising prices are making coal look more attractive. peabody and consol energy rose at least 8%. alpha natural and arch coal were up even stronger. looking ahead to tomorrow, j.p. morgan and wells fargo will report third quarter results before the opening bell. shares of j.p. morgan moved slightly higher on word that the bank's c.f.o. will step down and move into a different position. j.p. morgan is expected to post profits of $1.21 a share; that's 19 cents above last year's numbers. wells fargo is expected to earn 87 cents a share; that's 15 cents better than the same period last year. and finally, we see the powershares qqq's was the lone loser among most actively traded e.t.f.s. and that's tonight's "mar
that government taking 28% of family and businesses income is enough. president obama thinks that the government ought to be able to take as much as 44.8% of a small business's income. look, if you tax every person in successful small business making over $250,000 at 100%, it only runs the government for 98 days. if everybody who paid income taxes last year including successful small businesses doubled their income taxes this year we would still have a $300 billion deficit. you see, there aren't enough rich people and small businesses to tax to pay for all their spending. and so the next time you hear them say don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealtheer people to pay their fair share, watch out middle class. the tax bill is coming to you. that's why we're saying we need fundamental tax reform. let's take a look at this way. 8 out of 10 businesses file their taxes as individuals, not as corporations. where i come from, overseas, which is lake superior, the canadians they drop their tax rates to 15%. the average tax rate on businesses in industrialized world is 25% and the president wants the
kids with failing schools federal government, it is people closest to them, their parents, neighborhood, teachers, communities. we may not like that but you have to change the priorities. condoleezza rice says this should be the civil rights issue of our types. if you wait for college then you have adult issues. the -- >> that's not the issue -- >> it's so unfair to the -- >> withhe supreme court we have to -- >> we have one without the other. >> we have to switch now we're out of time. let us know what you think. please follow me on twitter @bonnieerbe. from affirmative action to the latina vote. it's hispanic heritage month, and a reminder that candidates this year are doing all they can to court hispanic voters. [speaking spanish] but new data from the pew but new data from the pewhispanic center suggest even though 24 million latinos are eligible to vote, hispanic voter turnout will be closer to 10 million. but why? latino voters are much younger than other racial and ethnic groups. and latinos in california and texas, two states with high hispanic populations, may not see a vote in
women have actually on size of government, issues and government policy generally, and one thing i think was interesting in this -- after the presidential debate, you saw on some polls the gender gap closeup when romney didn't talk about women at all and when they obsessed over it in the convention to me that was a sign that women like all other voters are really judging on the most important and central issue in this campaign, and that is the economy, when romney was more credible on that and gained with everyone including women. >> rose: chuck todd, will fact checkers tomorrow morning look at this and examine this and find out and suggest that somebody was either misleading or, quote, lying? >> i don't think there are any lies in there, my favorite part is when, you know, there is that one point where you have joe biden saying 97 percent of small businesses make $250,000 or less and paul ryan insisting 1 million businesses are affected by that and that is they are both rde but, right but want to use different numbers one wants to use raw data and the other percentage to make it look la
intelligence committee reported both have close ties to the government of china. it said using their components in u.s. computer networks could let them steal trade secrets or even shut down vital systems in a time of crisis. the two firms denied any such association to the chinese government. venezuela's leftist president hugo chavez will serve another six years after winning reelection sunday. his margin of victory was ten points, the narrowest in his 14 years in power. it was a bitterly fought race against challenger henrique capriles, who conceded defeat. chavez welcomed that concession last night, as supporters poured into the streets and surrounded the presidential palace. he addressed them from the balcony. >> my gratitude to the right wing ndidate and his campaign managers who announced to the country that they recognize our victory. this is a very important step for peace in venezuela, for our coexistence. >> sreenivasan: chavez is expected to step up his push for socialism, and to continue his longstanding criticism of u.s. foreign policy. turkey retaliated again today for shelling co
partnered with chinese partners, owners and the government, so we have -- >> rose: government as a partner? >> in many cases. you know, they are -- they own the land and will be part and parcel of an ownership sometimes and they will dersi anddiffult vest themselves of it. so we haven't found any difficulty. in the construction of it, we have had to really monitor it carefully to get the quality, but they eventually do reach that level of what -- >> rose: you mean things like importing marble from italy and that kind of stuff. >> they will but they want to use a lot of their own materials and their own suppliers, et cetera. so we have been able to reach the level of quality that is standard within the four systems, you know, realm of our control. >> rose: do you love the business? do you love it? >> i do. >> rose: do you get excited when you see a hotel? >> i do, because it is such a dynamic business, because you are dealing with people who work and people who use it, and the reaction you get from both of those is always a stimulating part of business and it is always different. >> rose:
rose. >> rose: at the clinton glol initiative business and government and ngos were in attendance to talk about big ideas, big problems. >> and here at cgi you've made impressive commitments in this fight. we are especially honored to be joined by advocates who dedicate their lives and at times risk their lives to liberate victims and help them recover. >> rose: we begin with the recent conversation with the president of mexico, felipe calderon. you headed up the g20. what was that experience for you as an opportunity to engage others and focusing on big global problems? >> let me start by remembering the meeting we had in france in november 2011. it was a very disappointing one. we finished that without agreements, even without a sense of direction. so the problem seemed not only serious but also out of control. and then we started a processhen mexico took over the head of the g20. we started a multiple processes in the sense that we beginning several ministerial meetings in order to put in a commonplace the different positions and try to close the gap between them. and at the sa
of meetings with customers and as well as high government officials, and i could see that they're putting in a similar program which is strongly targeted on the infrastructure side. so i'm confident that we will see growth coming back most likely at the end of the fourth quarter, i believe. and the u.s., atz as i just said, is doing a little better than we originally thought driven by the two strong segments, automotive and aerospace. >> susie: how are you factoring demand forecast when the international monetary fund saying today there are serious risks of a global recession? things are slowing down in china. how are you meet those kinds of high demands in the way that you're forecasting? >> look, we see the industry, and there's a lot of industry that is are wanting more and more aluminum. we see in the u.s., for instance, the automotive industry, not only growing but more strongly growing on the aluminum side, driven by regulations for lower emissions. and stronger kuflt mersensitivity for fuel efficiencies. and these two things come together and bring substantial amount of aluminum g
. it was the usual thing in mexico. the government would say what youould say on the air and what you cldn't say on the air. i decided i didn't want to be that kind of reporter so i sold everything and came to the united states. just imagine that now i can talk to anyone without asking permission for anything. i had to leave my country because of that. it used to be said that the powerful and the rich never leave their country, only those who need possibilities and those who are poor and those who are ambitious leave their countries. that's exactly what happened with me. i came here because i had to come here something pushed me out of mexico and something pulled me from the united states. now i have two passports, but honestly i have to thank this country because it gave me all the wonderful opportunities. if i would have stayed in mexico, i don't know what would have happened but i would have been a very poor, sad and probably censored journalist. >> why did your parents come? >> my parents came in the 1940s and it was because my father wanted my -- to raise a family here and to have all these
but local governments have started passing regulations to address the issue. they are informing educators, parents and others in the community that they have a responsibility to protect chdren. >>> people in tokyo, including myself, ar wearing warmer clothes today. it's a chilly morning. >> it's really cool. i wore a jacket in on my way to work. we had cooler conditions and less windy conditions. those conditions led to overnight cooling. today it's going to be the same story. we're going to see clear skies throughout the day today. out west this is a low pressure system producing heavy snow and showers in north eastern china that will be moving towards the korean peninsula. pr the tropical storm has been weakened to a low. it brings in drenching rain in northern parts of thailand. out east there's a typhoon. it's a strong typhoon. sustained winds are 126 kilometers per hour with gusts up to 108. it's going to strengthen into a strong typhoon. we're not sure where the system is going. we'll keep you posted. temperatures are looking like this. 22 degrees in seoul. it should be cooling down
